Laura and I (Sarah) would like to share some event highlights over the past month from Leeds and Yorkshire.

First of all, we spent two more great days at the White Rose Centre in Leeds (8th & 9th July). As always, we had a great response from the shoppers and staff! Thank you to all of those that took the time to stop and talk to us. Given that it is officially summer, we tried to get in the spirit of things with our summer accessories – even though we were inside, (and the weather wasn’t that great outside!) we made the most of it.

On Sunday 17th July, I had the pleasure of attending the first ever Pride festival in Worksop, South Yorkshire. Claire Hobson came along with me and we had a great day. Crystal Lucas, the event organiser, should be incredibly proud of what she has achieved with the first event of its kind in the area. There was a fantastic turnout and some brilliant live music. We’re looking forward to the event taking place again next year and going from strength to strength.
